I'm using slush's pool with GUIminer and its not making bitcoins. Now, you might be saying I just have a slow computer. I'm using a xeon server with 12GB RAM and 12 cores 3.20gh each. Any help?

Computer mining is over!
Bitcoin mining today is done with ASIC hardware.

Just to add to the point above, most recent miners are about 40 000 times more powerful than what you are mining with right now.
They are special devices which are made specifically to mine bitcoins.
Basically, you competing against them and that's why you are getting no shares from your pool when it solves a block.

Does your CPU-based mining rig even generate 1 MH/s ?

 Compare this to a SINGLE Antminer S9 (highest-hash current ASIC rig) that generates over 11,000 MH/s (some versions of the S9 manage more like 14,000) - and then you'll understand why you would be lucky to get even ONE share in a week with your very old, very behind the times, very poor performance for high energy consumption CPU-based rig when competing against probably THOUSANDS of S9 units (and many more thousands of the other ASIC units with SOMEWHAT less performance) that is pointed at Slush's pool.

 You should look into a CPU-centric altcoin to mine with your rig, it's a total waste of time and energy trying to mine Bitcoin with it and has been that way for a few YEARS now.

You've a slow computer!
Only bitcoin mining done now is asic mining.
Each GHz will give you around a KHz of power. There's only around 36KHs there then so you're not really going to get anything from that.
